An electron microscope is capable of much higher magnifications than a light microscope, allowing the observation of smaller details in high-definition. The Zebra RH, in combination with a turbomolecular vacuum pump, is the ideal vacuum generator for this application and is commonly used in scanning electron microscopes (SEM) and transmission electron microscopes (TEM).
In mass spectrometers, vacuum guarantees that ions reach the detector not being deflected by collisions with oxygen molecules. Zebra RH rotary vane vacuum pumps ensure exact analysis results here.
Helium is commonly used to detect the leak rate in a vacuum installation. The Zebra RH can be installed in helium mass spectrometers to back a turbomolecular vacuum pump.
Glove boxes provide an isolated work environment for the manipulation of contamination- sensitive materials. The Zebra series is the best choice to reliably maintain an airfree working place.
Flywheel energy storage (FES)
FES systems are frequently used to store energy, regulate the power supply and protect hospitals, production sites, data centres, etc., from a power failure. They consist of a rotor inside a vacuum chamber to reduce friction to a minimum. Zebra vacuum pumps are typically used to maintain the vacuum level in the chamber, thereby improving efficiency and extending system life.
Thin film deposition
Vacuum is a key part of many coating processes, creating specific atmospheric conditions to improve surfaces and component properties. Zebra RH are the perfect solution, whether for small sputter coaters or larger deposition installations. They are the vacuum generators of choice for physical vapour deposition (PVD) and chemical vapour deposition (CVD).
Vacuum drying is employed when delicate materials need to be dried rapidly at low temperatures and without thermal damage. The liquid contained in the processed materials is evaporated by pressure reduction and extracted as vapour. For drying perishable or high-value products, life science laboratories and the food industry use freeze drying or lyophilization. The high vapour handling capacity of Zebra vacuum pumps makes them perfectly suited for drying processes.
Vacuum furnaces are able to heat metals to extremely high temperatures and to carry out heat treatment processes without contamination. This leads to enormous improvements in product quality and surface finish. Vacuum systems with Zebra RH rotary vane vacuum pumps as backing pumps provide perfect and efficient vacuum generation for such processes.
